  1. There's no question that the BEQs posted to AVSForum cover a wide range of content, which also includes films that IMO didn't need them to begin with. I have a few reasons for being less than enthusiastic about them. For one, headroom requirements are a total unknown, and many appear very aggressive and likely to overload my system. For another, I strongly believe "first, do no harm" as far as the soundtrack is concerned. Ideally, filters of any kind should only be used when they are fundamentally part of the sound. The point of the BEQ, IMO, is to precisely reverse the degrading filt

In other news I have picked back up on working on a single driver version finally. I've basically got the cab layout and fold nailed down. I just need to decide on bracing and hatch then put the models and print together which takes a bit. Hopefully I'll have it
